Thirty Days NCIS Meme Mark 02. Day #10 - Favourite Season 8 episode

I have such fun doing thirty days memes that I decided to create another  NCIS one. Please feel free to snaggle it should you wish to.

Day #10 - Favourite Season 8 episode

For me Season 8 was another mixed season. It started with great promise, it delivered some excellent episodes, but it also had some fairly poor ones. My favourite was an easy choice:

'Recruited'.

For me it was an utterly amazing episode.

There were so many poignant, touching and moving moments, points and details. It was so honest and real and so relevant. And amazing acting in particular from Bob Newhart and David McCallum but also from Guy Wilson who played the seventeen year old Paul Simmons. In fact there was great acting all round from all the regulars and guest stars.

It had a superb case that gripped me all the way through and was powerful, poignant and intense. And a sub-plot that was equally gripping and moving.

There was great team interaction, a lot of moving scenes, it was emotionally intense. There was virtually nothing to fault. Just such a superb top notch episode. So very sad, but so very good.

I don't think we've had such an emotionally intense episode since 'Call Of Silence' and it was akin to 'Call Of Silence', it really was.
